According to an insider in Arsenal, it has been revealed that the Gunners are In talks to sign a striker other than Juventus Forward Alvaro Morata. The forward is said to be a top player who impressed last season for a small club. While the insider did not make mention that it is Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, the rumour has refused to die down mainly because the striker is said to be English with a deadly finish.
Leicester City on their part have made it clear they would not stand on the way of any of their player who wants to quit the club in the summer If the right offer is offered them. The likes of Vardy, N’golo Kante and Okazaki are said to have received good offers from other clubs and are stalling on signing a contract extension this summer.
The sighing of Vardy for Arsenal is also very likely to be untrue because of the money that Arsenal will need to price Vardy from Leicester. With Oliver Giroud’s poor form and Danny Welbeck’s injury, Wenger needs a third striker to help fire him to the Premier League title next season but that doesn’t guarantee that the signing will be Jamie Vardy.
